Rookie Journal Inspiration, Part 1

As you may recall, one of my 13 in 2013 goals is to start a journal. I bought a journal a week or two ago when I went out with my friend, and I have started writing in it.

Also, over break, Rookie posted a bunch of its readers' journal photos in a blog post. They were so inspiring! You can view the whole post here. There are 42 images that I selected, so I will split it up into two posts: one right now and one later this week. These are the ones that inspired me the most.

  1. this is so cute! i love looking at other people's handwriting and diaries :) x

  2. I LOVED keeping a journal when I was younger, something changed once I hit my 20s, but this makes me want to go back to it. I feel like it helped me to understand myself better, and that's something we all need a little more of!

  3. Omg reminds me of my own journal.. Love this! Sending love from New York City, hope you are well. Please follow me! & like me on Facebook! If you have bloglovin, we should follow each other!

  4. I have several journals I love to update, I just have to find the time!! Thanks for the inspiration to find that time to do it! =)


  5. awwww this is so inspirational! It's amazing how much effort is inside of them and I love looking at the creativity of all the different people. I was keeping a Journal while travelling in Japan but it's ages since I last wrote in a journal... I should really try it again :) it's wonderful to look at your thoughts and sketches after some years ;)

  6. check out dan eldon's journals at for inspiration. he was an amazing journalist.


  7. The Claire and Alia notebooks are so beautiful :D

    I love see what the others do on their journal. It's like seeing the most hidden part of them, and more misterious. :)


  8. how cute you have lovely handwriting

  9. Wow, they're all amazing ~ makes me want to write one myself!

  10. These are fantastic. I've never been great about keeping a journal. I've always been too afraid that someone will find it.
